Do you drink like John Thrasher, Daryn Carp or Matt the Bartender (ewww)? Get ready to pick your poison for the Death Becomes Us live show.

Martinis & Murder with Death Becomes Us: Pick Your Poison!

We know you have your favorite on Martinis & Murder, and now it is time to show everyone who it is at our live show March 23 at Gramercy Theater.

Are you sassy and spicy like Daryn Carp? Sweet and smooth like John Thrasher? Or dark and twisted like Matt the Bartender? Every attendee at the $10 show will get a free cocktail and souvenir Martinis & Murder glass, plus the chance to see the murder magic in person. What a bargain!

And while these recipes might not be the exact formulations available at the venue, you will be able to pick The Matt (a Manhattan), The Daryn (a Moscow Mule) or The John (a Chocotini). If you can't make it, here's how to drink along at home. 

The Matt

2 ounces Basil Hayden Dark Rye
1 ounce sweet vermouth
2 dashes Angostura Bitters
1 dash Orange Bitters
Brandied cherry
Combine ingredients and stir with ice. Strain and serve up. Garnish with a brandied cherry.

The Daryn

2 ounces Effen vodka
1 lime
Ginger beer
Chop a lime in half. Squeeze half the lime into a glass and throw the lime shell in as well. Fill the glass with ice. Pour in two ounces of vodka, and top with ginger beer. Serve with a stir stick.

The John

2 ounces Baileys Irish Cream
1/2 ounce Godiva Chocolate Liqueur
